Ron Heitzman is President of Parksite Inc., a 100% employee-owned company in the building materials industry. With a heritage of providing building product solutions and comprehensive product education, Parksite serves as a resource to the building materials supply chain. Combining exceptional sales, marketing and distribution support with a Specialist Network who provide consultative services and support to Builders, Architects, Designers, Remodelers, General Contractors, Deck Builders and Fabricators, Parksite has helped build some of the leading brands in the industry. Examples include DuPont Tyvek® Corian® and Zodiaq®, Azek Trim® Deck® and Porch®, Nichiha Fiber Cement, and Arborite Laminates. With the right business model, the right people and the right culture, Parksite has become the industry leader with each of the products we represent. Ron joined Parksite in 2000 as Chief Financial Officer and became President in 2005. Since 2000, the company has experienced rapid expansion through both organic growth and acquisition and has managed through the most severe building industry cyclical downturn in history. Parksite employee-owners rallied exceptionally well in both of those challenging environments. Prior to coming to Parksite, Ron was a Consulting Partner at RSM McGladrey, where he specialized in helping manufacturing and distribution companies manage through high change environments.
